I have a theory that using psychedelics causes one to be forced into using a personality function different than their primary one. Psychedelics force the user into using his or her secondary/auxiliary/opposing function, such as for example, an ENTP forced into using Ti, Fe, and Si as a dominant function.
Maybe using psychedelics can also cause one to instead use functions that are not in their "personality inventory". Such an example being: an Ne user using Ni or Se. I believe "states of consciousness" can refer to being fixated in using another "dominant" function. There is a Freud theory that one's ego is the dominant personality function. Maybe the loss of one's ego that one frequently feels when "tripping" is actually the use of other personality functions?
Evidence for this theory: effects of "increased visual effects, color depthness" (maybe a dominant user describing usage of an exaggerated awareness of Se coming from an Ni dominant), awareness of unknown such as hidden government agendas (maybe Ti/Ni usage?), deep store memory becomes accessible (speculating Si).
However, I don't believe psychedelics can cause a permanent personality change (that might be debatable depending on circumstances such as the mental state of the patient) since one reverts back to the ego (dominant function) when the effects of the drug wear off. I believe that one can only have "awareness" of the mind sets but not usage of them. However, with continued use, one finds it easier to slip back into using other personality functions because their brain's hardwire has been changed.
What do you guys think?
